They send email and mail a letter or brochure with all different kind deals and offers. Most of the luxury cars like Audi, Acura, BMW, and Mercedes etc don’t send out junk mail and email to draw consumer’s attention. Let’s say Acura for example.

Advertising in the media has been a dominant feature in American culture since the early 20th century, connecting products and lifestyles as well as services and states of mind to tell society that happiness and satisfaction can be purchased. It promotes a worldview that stresses the individual and private life while being mainly about selling, telling us that the market relations of buying and selling are the appropriate forms of social relation, overall promoting a culture of consumption. The belief system of capitalism is most associated with advertising because of their values of freedom and independence. Advertising relates to ideologies of the media concerning the worldview of the powerful and contradictions that dispute the worldview. Most ads feature dominant ideology, displaying glamor and power while normalizing the upper and middle class to make the people subconsciously or consciously feel the need to buy things. Normalization also applies to advertising as many ads continuously depicts a similar message to emphasize what society should think is 'normal.' Advertising however, likes to use humor and irony to depict the same massages of freedom while contradicting what society holds as 'normal.' Southern Comfort's ad campaign and slogan 'Whatever's Comfortable' features an ad containing a heavy set man in a speedo cruising down the beach. This ad is relevant to individuality and private life and is depicted ironically through the perspective of the middle class

For example, people tent to start looking at an advertisement in the top left corner and then scan the page. This ad has the slogan in the corner, next to an adventurous picture of men riding horses. The car itself is in the middle of the poster and is very large compared to everything else. This gives the viewer a feeling of association between the two. There are also some lines that people tent to follow subconsciously,
Throughout history, engineers and scientists have achieved breakthroughs that allow the invention of the world’s most influential products to come into existence. Johannes Gutenberg 's printing press of the fifteenth century allowed for books to be printed, copied, and spread as seen never before. The introduction of the Bessemer process by Andrew Carnegie in steel manufacturing brought about the construction of modern cities. Thomas Edison’s electric light of the 1800s lit up a world previously reliant on the light of daylight and candles. Innovations such as these are remembered for the same reason, which is that society and the way in which we live in it is still affected to this day by them. Following the victory by Americans of securing independence and sovereignty for Great Britain, the nation became a political, economic, and military, and scientific powerhouse within a very short time. By the late nineteenth century, a new marvel had appeared across the Atlantic in Europe: the automobile. Though transportation such as trains or steamboats had been widely available since the early 1800s, the automobile would allow people to trade in their horse-drawn carriages.

Automobiles are arguably one of the most important inventions in the history of the world. Not only have they allowed us to get from point A to point B in a faster fashion than walking but they have also aided us in new inventions that will greatly benefit the world. Before the birth of the automobile, people had few choices of transportation that could actually get them to a specific location of their choosing. Railroads and boats were modes of transportation that were mainly used for travelling long distances, however for the shorter distances people either had to walk or arrive to their destination by way of horse or horse and carriage. These two modes of transportation were the only ways to get to exactly where you were going and not just in a general area or close to where you were going, as would trains and boats. This all changed with the invention of the automobile. The Merriam-Webster’s dictionary defines an automobile as, “a usually four-wheeled automotive vehicle designed for passenger transportation” an invention that would not only revolutionize transportation but also the world. The means by which people would get from one place to another would be completely altered by this single invention. Some people will say that the Ford Model T made in 1908 was the first car ever, however those who claim this are terribly mistaken. The first car ever to be built was the Benz Patent-Motorwagen, designed and created in the year 1886 by German inventor, Karl Benz.
